Not In Yet...

Is anyone, other than me, not in the water yet this spring? I'm going crazy because my yard is trying to finish up some painting work and I have already had to delay putting her in twice!!!!

I can't read another post about "went down to the boat after work, winds 15 knots, best sailing day of my life, singled handed her onto the mooring no problem, grilled a lobster, went below for a nap and found 5 gorgeous nude blondes......" Well, I threw that last part in...poetic license.

I'm not going to have any hair left if I have to keep waiting!!!!! Is anyone else being held captive by their yard??? Maybe I should move to Florida and never take her out of the water in the first place.....

UUUGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Actually posts like this make me glad I DO NOT live on the right coast fo the US! I may be out of the water on the hard right now, but that only occurs every 2-3 yrs for new bottom paint etc. Otherwise, one can sail 24/7/12. OK so it is a little cold in Jan, but with an av low of 35, high of 45, water is 42-44 yr around............be back in the water monday or so.......AFTER I paint an Orca on the keel to go after that GW Alex has! unfotunetly for me, with a top speed of 7-8 knots, his GW going 14-17.......oh well

Alden68-

I have my boat on the hard getting work done on it... so I understand how you feel... However, I did sail it the day after Memorial day... as I had to make some adjustments to its trailer, and splashed the boat for a few days.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SD - I hope you get in soon. I know you share the anticipation of a New England spring.

If I miss my next date I'm afraid my crew might mutiny berfore the hull gets wet!
